DID I MISS THE SALE?!?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Actually yes, I believe smitchell's assumption is correct.
It's stunning and sad that some people may have missed the sale when they appeared to be interested in it.

But you say it yourself, you haven't closely followed the forum or the newsletters.
Also if you have tried an old release, I strongly suggest you to update to the newer it has greatly improved.

Still, C2 is still at a very reasonable price and people who saw the benefits of this software can still obtain it.


Finaly, victimizing oneself when arriving in a newer international community is not considered the best approach either.
Noga's post is not accusational, it sounds like a pretty legitimate question to me too in the end.
You use "your interest in the software" to legitimate the fact that you're making a post wondering how you missed the sale period.

You said it yourself, you downloaded an old version (from 2011 apparently since the end of the early adopter period was annonunced in the early days of 2012) and didn't got back to the website until recently.
It is sad, but "it is on you". Telles even linked you to a similar topic listing all the communication/marketing steps that Scirra took to announce the end of the early-adopter period.
At one point, and I believe the question has already been asked in the other topic, what would you have wanted them to do to broadcast this information even wider if yourself didn't take the step to "get in touch" ?
It's understandable on your part, to an extent.
Blame bad timing/fate I guess.

Despite all this, as I said earlier, you can still get a license to a reasonable price and further your use of the software and benefit from it.

And also welcome on the forum, despite this "bumpy" mutual introduction, you'll be able to see, if you stick around, that it is one of the nicest and most helpful community you'll meet on the internet today.

[QUOTE=GenkiGenga] I can sympathise, i actually wish i bought the business version at sale price.

That being said, its still unbelievably cheap for the quality of program. You can tell from the free version what your getting. Its worth every cent. :)[/QUOTE]

Ya, but there IS something that gets you in the gut about having to pay twice as much for something that was on sale so recently.

Maybe I'll sit this one out and wait to see if there will be another offer someday...

@ Kyatric

Look, all I was simply asking was whether or not there would be another sale and, instead of a simple answer, it has turned in to something "bumpy", as you said.

I don't need to be lectured on how it was MY fault for ANYTHING.

I myself ACKNOWLEDGED that I missed the sale, yet, I have people continuing to want to find some kind of fault here.

I blamed no one for my mistake and yet, it seems to be the going meme for my post.

I simply asked IF THERE WAS GOING TO BE ANOTHER SALE in the future.

Geez, if THIS is the community response here, maybe its just as well I don't get involved....

You can go to the Open Topic forum section and see if anybody is in need of resources. Also, you can go to any website you want that has to do game dev. and offer the exchange. I was recently in need of a spriter that would help me with a rather big sprite sheet edit in exchange for a C2 licence... I made the topic here, but no luck. So I was in another forum where someone asked me for help with something about MMF2. I helped him and recommended C2... He liked it and asked about the licence, so I told him, but I also felt like I should ask if he was good at spiriting and that I would buy it for him if he helped me. He accepted and we made a deal. It was in the most unlikely place though. So, I guess there's no place unlikely enough.
